A man in his early 20’s has been arrested after shots were fired in the Mullinahone area last night.

At about 10.30pm Gardaí received reports of a shooting incident at a house.

When they arrived at the scene, they found a number of bullet casings.


There were no reports of any injuries.

A follow-up operation then took place, involving local Gardaí and members of the Armed Support Unit.

A number of licenced firearms were seized and a man in his late teens was arrested.

He’s currently being detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984, in Clonmel Garda Station.

Investigations are ongoing.
